About Backlinks

Getting backlinks from sites with real traffic is another way to solidify your tier one.  These are the hardest backlinks to get but are also the most rewarding.  Since you will never know the exact traffic data of a site without getting in their analytics, you will need to use SEM Rush.

Focus your efforts on getting backlinks from sites that have high standards.  If they are linking out to “scammy” industries, then you do not want your link to live there.  Examine every prospective website and ask:

What are they linking out to?
Are the outbound links relevant?
Are the outbound links going to respected, trusted sites?
If you see “viagra” or “gambling” or anything of that nature, then avoid that website.

There are certain backlinks that should never touch your site.  If you decide to use these backlinks, just know that your risk for a penalty is much greater.  Your tier one should be a wall of relevancy surrounding your site.  Almost every link should be relevant because there are some situations when pure relevancy isn’t a must.

You can go on almost any SEO forum and buy backlinks on public networks. These networks will often advertise their service as “private blog networks”. But that’s a lie.  Once you are advertising a network, it is no longer private.  Throughout Google’s short history, it has gone out of its way to smash public networks. After that, they go out and destroy every website that is using these networks.

It's easy for Google to spot these networks because:

A) there are an excessive amount of outbound links (typically 25-50+) on the homepage: homepages on REAL websites don’t have a ridiculous amount of outbound links on the homepage.

B) the outbound links are completely irrelevant to each other: there will be links going to gambling sites, SEO sites, fitness sites, etc. It doesn’t make any sense.

C) the content for each post is thin (only 250-300 words): Google's Panda algorithm hates thin content.

D) you can run, but you can't hide: some networks will attempt to block Ahrefs and Majestic crawlers, but it's actually a footprint. On the other hand, networks that don’t block crawlers will likely get reported to Google because of an angry competitor. It’s a lose-lose situation.
